Find out how fast you can type on your smartphone with Typist

Were you ever curious how fast you can type on your smartphone? In that case, you might want to give Typist for Android a try.

This app offers a set of typing tests so you can put your skills to the test. During the test, Typist highlights the word you’re currently at and displays your average word-per-minute typing rate when it’s complete.

Typist lets you find out how fast you can type on your smartphone

It has 10 different typing tests and you can set their length to 1, 2, or 3 minutes. The tests are based on popular novels and besides the word-per-minute rate, the app will show additional information such as total errors, accuracy, characters/second and letters with most errors.

Besides your own typing practice, your typing performance may vary based on the device you are using and the size of the keyboard. However, all the information provided by Typist is still a great indicator of your actual typing skills.

What’s more, if you have Google Play Games installed, you can compete against your friends and see how you score in Google Play leaderboards and your local high score list.

Typist works with any keyboard layout, which is interesting since you can use the app to test multiple layouts and see on which one you type faster.

The app also offers a chart in which you can see past results of your tests and your progress over time. While it wasn’t designed as an app that lets you learn how to type, you can use Typist to improve your typing speed and accuracy by performing tests on a regular basis.
